I’ve searched but have not found any function or feature in Pinegrow to create a drag and drop (D&D) file-uploading area on a webpage (see my attachment). Does this capability exist anywhere in the PG app? If not, has anyone built their own D&D for a site and care to share your how to? I’d like the object to upload to a specific folder on my site for client retrieval.
(Meanwhile, I’ll continue to Google until I find something that will work for me).
Basically this is a form feature. Pretty sure it requires some sort of PHP coding. I have an account with Jotforms which has an upload widget you can use on their forms, so that’s what I use when I need to have this on a client’s website. They do offer a free plan. Some other form companies also have free plans with the ability to accept file uploads (thought the number and size is probably limited.)
I found this answer in Quora, which looks pretty complete
My advice, unless this just something personal you want for yourself, I’d tell the client it’s an add-on service with an additional monthly fee, and then use that money to pay for a service that allows you to embed forms/widgets into your websites to accept file uploads.
Thank AGAIN for your time and advice @Printninja.
I talked to my friend Ray Borduin at WebAssist and their Databridge has a file upload feature that allows for a drag and drop and since I already use their extension in Dreamweaver, I used it. One can drag a file over the browse button and it senses the filename and will upload it… not slick but it works, See my latest project to review: https://rjrwebz.com/encorebakery/uploads.html.
Site looks great. I did spot a couple of typos on the Pastries page…
What’s not to love about a tempting fruit-laden pastry garnished with a sprinkle of powdered sugar, accompanied with a hot tea, a favotite coffeee blend or other beverage?
Thanks for spotting this @Printninja - I haven’t run a spell-checker on the site yet. Near-final site: rjrwebz.com/encorebakery
